The Scholarships, Grants, and Recognition Committee for the Ohio Joint Council of Extension Professionals recognizes the uncertainty of 2021. This includes limits on out-of-state travel, conferences not being held in-person, etc. Because of this, the committee has extended the deadline to apply for the first-timers awards (purpose to help fund members’ first attendance at national association conferences). The committee also has determined that if you have previously attended a national Extension conference virtually, you are eligible to apply for the award to attend your first in-person conference. You may still only receive the award once. All full members of the association are eligible to apply. More details and links to apply are posted at: go.osu.edu/ojcepscholarship.
